Nose tackle Barry Cofield returned to practice Thursday after sitting out the previous day’s session with a sore groin muscle, Coach Jay Gruden said.

“Cofield’s fine,” Gruden said. “He did all the team drills today. He’ll be okay. He’ll be [active] and ready for Baltimore.”

Meantime, cornerback Tracy Porter is “probably going to be out” with a hamstring strain while running back Chris Thompson (ankle) is “50-50” for Saturday, according to Gruden. Thompson was injured in the preseason opener against the Patriots.

“It’s a game-time decision,” Thompson said. “Basically, it’s a call by the coaches and I’ve just got to see how my body feels. Had a pretty good day today. Felt good so I’ve got to wait these two days out and see how I feel.”

Running back Lache Seastrunk missed practice as he tended to a family matter. He tweeted earlier this week that his grandmother had passed away.

Linebacker Darryl Sharpton also did not practice. He’s been battling a high ankle sprain for weeks.
